Kranti Yoga is delighted to offer this 300 hour YTTC. Join us in Patnem for this 4 week course that brings together Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. This course is our advanced YTTC certification. It is for those students who have already graduated in any Yoga Alliance registered 200 hrs YTTC and would like to deepen practice and develop new skills as a teacher
Doasist practice of Yin and Yang which is based on opposing qualities of nature. Ashtanga Yoga is an active practice; Yin Yoga is therefore passive. If we think of the muscles as being yang and the connective tissues as being yin, the practice of Yin Yoga targets the less pliable parts of the body bringing about better flexibility and joint mobility. And so, a combination of Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flow is a highly successful way to advance both your practice and that of your students.
This course is ideal if you would like to:
1. Understand the differences between Yin and Yang practices.
2. Practice Vinyasa Flow, achieving complex postures through dynamic sequencing
3. Develop a Yin Yoga practice that will complimentVinyasa Flow and Ashtanga Yoga.
4. Studyanatomy from an eastern and Western perspective.
5. Learn about Myofascia and its relevance to yoga on a spiritual and physical level.
6. Sequence and teach a Yin Yoga class.
7. Devise and deliver a 90 minute Vinyasa Flow Class.
The course runs in conjunction with our 300 hour Vinyasa Flow Course and some modules will be taught together. The course is taught in a fun, progressive manner bringing together Eastern practices and contemporary thought. Modules will include the following:
Yin Yoga Morning Practice
These classes will take place on alternate days throughout the course. The commentary will detail the anatomical features of the postures and corresponding impact on the energetic flow throughout the subtle body. Students will becomeaware of the energetic shifts that happen in the subtle body, developing a mindful meditative practice.
These classes will take place on alternate days throughout the course. Each class will have a technical focus that will work towards a peak posture. Classes will incorporate stretching and strengthening techniques. Peak postures could include Kurmasana (Superficial Back Line,) Eka Pada Raj Kapotasana (Superficial Front Line,) Chaturanga Dandasana (Front and Back Arm Lines), Hanumanasana (Spiral Line.) We will also explore the myofascial connections for advanced postures such as Eka Pada Koundinyasa II and Vastisthasana. These classes have been designed to challenge your practice on both a physical and spiritual level whilst observing and accepting limitations to practice.
Pranayama and Meditation
This will take place each morning following Yin Yoga or Vinyasa Flow. Each week, new pranayama techniques will be explored. Meditation techniques will include Mantra Chanting, Affirmations and Beach Meditation.
Yin Yoga Alignment
In this class, students will explore the alignment of over 30 Yin Yoga postures. Students will learn how to alignand modify the postures, looking at how to use props to maximize the potential of the postures.This class will provide a forum to explore the differences between Western anatomy and the subtle body.
Yin Yoga Teaching Methodology
Students will learn how to sequence and teach a lesson with integrity. The commentary that accompanies a successful Yin Yoga Class is crucial. Students will learn how to build a commentary and will be encouraged to know the details of the postures in order that they can develop the correct vocabulary and dialogue. This will include instructions to enter and exit the posture, benefits of the posture, anatomical information, the flow of energy and the subtle body.
This module will include a review of the skeletal muscular system from the 200 hr YTTC curriculum. It will provide the fundamentals to understanding the anatomy of fascia. Students will review origin, insertion, functionality and physiology of muscles. This module will look in detail at the anatomy of the shoulder and the importance of building shoulder stability to support your Vinyasa Flow practice. The Anatomy Theory Classes will take place during the first week and then knowledge will be applied for the duration of the course. Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flow provide great opportunities to secure anatomical understanding through practice.
Anatomy of Myofascia
These classes will focus on the fascial connections throughout the body, looking at the function of the fascia and dealing with the body in totality. This is the anatomy of fascia. Students will compare traditional anatomy with contemporary thinking, considering how this applies to the practice of Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. Studies will include mapping of the Superficial Front, Back and Side Lines; the Superficial Front and Back Arm Lines; the Spiral Lines. The module will provide an exploration of strength and flexibility for the fascial body. Students will understand the importance of bio-tensegrity and how to maintain the body’s natural tensile structure when preparing a Yin Yoga Class.
An Exploration of Strength and Flexibility
Students will learn the science of stretching and strengthening. Techniques will include PNF, Active Release and Trigger Point Yoga. The fascial connections within the body get sticky, bringing about stiffness. This prevents access to postures. Stretching and strengthening techniques can help break down adhesions and promote better hydration of the body. This can have a positive effect on range of motion and mobility. Yin Yoga itself is a great example of this. These classes will take place in a workshop format.
Students will explore what takes place in the energetic body. This includes the study of the meridian lines, chakras and the 5 elements according to the Daoist approach to Yin Yoga.
Students will explore the fundamental concepts of The Yoga Sutras. This module will guide students to explore different translations and interpretations, looking at how the commentaries have evolved throughout the ages. The module will include debate on how the mind has evolved over time and what Patanjali hoped to achieve through this text. Alongside this, students will explore the concept of Daoism and how this applies to Yin Yoga.
This module will provide insight into this Vedic approach to medicine, the science of life. Students will be introduced to the doshas to determine their Ayurvedic constitution (body type): vata, pitta or kapha. Vata is air. Pitta is fire. Kapha is earth. Students will be encouraged to make lifestyle choices in accordance with body type. This module is closely linked in with Yoga Philosophy, making reference to the Samkhya Philosophy and the dualist concept of Purusha and Prakriti in yoga.
There are scheduled weekly evening activities. These can include Moonlight/Candlelight/Om Meditation, Yoga Movies, Hindu Mythology Story Time, Moonlight Flow, Local Festivals and Japa Yoga.
1. Teach a 60 minute Yin Yoga Class to your peers.
2. Pass a written test on the Skeletal Muscular System and Anatomy of Myofascia.
3. Pass a written test in Yoga Philosophy (open book exam).

...and my expectations were high! After visiting their website I was convinced to book my first yoga holiday at Kranti Yoga and I couldn't have found a better place to relax and connect with myself. Kranti Yoga is a beautiful place right by the sea, full of chill-out lounges and yoga and meditation platforms (there is even a tree house where we would do our morning breathing meditation). I am still blown away by the beautiful and loving atmosphere - no music needed, you could feel the harmony. The staff was sweet and helping out wherever they could, the cottages were clean and charmingly arranged with everything you need to feel at home (I loved the hammock and swinging chair) and the kitchen team did an incredible job...every meal was a sensation!! My husband and I enjoyed the yoga and meditation sessions very much (the teachers were amazing - Thank you Eve and Kara!) and we can't wait to come back again. Thank you Kranti Yoga for an extraordinary experience!!

Charming place at the Goa beach, fabulous-delicious-yummy food, friendly staff, amazing teachers. Packed agenda with yoga practice and meditation, but in the same time with so much easy and zero stress. I came with severe upper back problems that lasted for years, and get out of it with no pain at all. It truly changed my life.

Brilliant yoga teachers, top quality classes. Very organised and reliable schedule. Location in a village and directly on the ocean front is to die for. The food is fantastic. Only downside is the presence of many insects and no cleaning materials to sweep the room or repel the bugs. But this is high quality yoga and I really hope to be back again! It’s totally the yoga dream place.

Kranti Yoga was a wonderful place to experience my first yoga retreat/yoga holiday. The classes were challenging but able to be adapted to beginners. All of the instructors were warm, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable about their practice. The atmosphere was calm, relaxing, and beautiful.

I loved every single second at Kranti! The shala staff were phenomenal, from accommodating requests to keeping the shala spotless - you couldn't ask for anything better. I completed my 200 hour Ashtanga-Vinyasa Teacher Training and am confident with the skills I learned at Kranti to teach a yoga class. Our lead teacher Vicki Reynolds was one of the most inspiring teachers I've ever had (university professors included) she really knows how to teach. All of the other teachers were fantastic as well (Steph, Alex, Ida, Grace, Faye, Enzo, Didier, Fran, Laura, Julia, Lisa). The food was great, and with the shala being a few steps from the beach you can't ask for anything better! Already planning my next trip back to Kranti for my 300 hour YTT :D

Kranti Yoga is the place to be if you’re looking to begin or to progress as a teacher. The caliber of Teacher Trainers there are absolutely priceless. I recently finished my 300hr YTT here and I loved every single second of it. I initially had reservations about doing the course through Kranti Yoga as it is a very western yoga school, but was pleasantly surprised to find the perfect blend of essential western teaching menthodology with traditional Indian culture and philosophy. You will not only learn about in-depth anatomy, adjustment and alignment, indian philopshy and practices, you will also deepen your personal practice to the next level under constructive guidance. The accomodation was fab, the food was amazing and you’re right on the beach. What more could you want?! I’m forever greatful for my experience at Kranti.

I did my 100 hours Yin Yoga teacher training in April on my second Visit to Kranti. The content and structure of the course was great with amazing teachers to guide through the course material. I would recommend the course to anyone looking to deepen and add to their practice, a great addition after 200hours Ashtanga/ Vinyasa. Good Vibes at Kranti Yoga ✨????????????

Spent almost 3 weeks in Kranti Village this April on an intensive course and I must say it was worth every penny (or euro in my case????). Great accommodation, even better food and yoga classes all day long. My course entitled me to one hour one-2-one class each day focused on ashtanga primary series asanas and their correct alignments and modifications which was super helpfull and I’m forever grateful to Ida for being a great and patient teacher:) Definitely recomment Kranti as a place to enjoy both yoga and beach chill out time.

I found Paradise! I can't describe how happy I am that I found Kranti Yoga. After travelling for so long to many countries I got to India. I knew that there had to be a place like I had found in Indonesia before. A place where you just feel at home. As soon as I entered I was overwhelmed by its beauty, peacefulness, love in every detail, friendlyness of the staff people, rooms.... the Yoga teachers are very well trained, the program is great if you want to experience or deepen Yoga and Meditation. Best Food. Everybody smiling. I am coming back.
